Football fashion: Blackouts and orange-outs

College Football, Louisville Cardinals, Boise State Broncos, Washington State Cougars, Utah Utes, Minnesota Golden Gophers

Wear your sunglasses or adjust things on your TV. It's going to be a colorful weekend in the football fashion world.

It started Thursday when Boise State went all orange against New Mexico.

Not to be out-oranged by an in-state team in Boise State, Idaho State will have its own shade of all-orange against Nevada.

In the weekend's biggest game, Louisville will be going with a look that's decidedly less bright. The Ville goes dark with the Cardinals wearing all black for Saturday's primetime game against Clemson (8 p.m. ET, ABC and ESPN App).

Now, all that orange is fine, but a notable orange expert, Anthony Burgess the author of "A Clockwork Orange," once said "Life is a wretched gray Saturday, but it has to be lived through."

Washington State is taking that to heart this weekend against Oregon State. The Cougars will be spending this Saturday in all gray.

New lids all around
